Competent and motivated employees are one of the major pillars of entrepreneurial success. Therefore, legally well-founded employment agreements, which on the one hand both mirror the specific needs of the company and of the employer and on the other hand take into account the strict rules of labour law case law are indispensable. Cumbersome and expensive court proceedings, which negatively affect the company’s climate, may be avoided by timely choosing the correct type of contract and working time model. We will support you with our profound knowledge of labour law case law, strategic reasoning and soft skills in dealing with employees in “difficult” situations (be it with an employee or with the works’ council).
